Indy bookstore with a variety of titles

This is a small bookstore in the main shopping area of town. It has a wide variety of titles, but nothing that you couldn't find on Amazon.

I walked in, intent on searching for a new book to read while relaxing on my vacation. Of course I had my cellphone in my hand watching for a text from my boyfriend; the second I walked through the door I was chided like a child who doesn't know what cellphone etiquette is: "You have to turn your cellphone off....

Fun bookstore and very friendly staff ! Bought three children's books I had not seen before. Wonderful international stories in two of them and great message about friendship and promise in the third. Be sure to stop in .We always visit the local independent bookstore when we travel.

We try to visit Gazebo Books whenever we are in Eureka Springs. It has a unique selection of books you won't find just anywhere and we always leave with at least one of them! They also carry magnets, posters, and mugs. The proprietress is friendly. I love the fact that we get a handwritten receipt for our purchases. I'm not... More

From many years past we loved visiting this store for it was very Pagan in its focus, but now seems to have slipped into more traditional book store focus. Kind of disappointing since the specialty shops are what make Eureka Springs so wonderful in nature. Keep in mind people that the USA was formed with the focus of religious freedom,... More

The staff working behind the counter was very helpful and I enjoyed our legnthy conversation. I think she may have been the owner, but I never thought to ask so I cannot confirm. The bookstore carried a wide variety of books and assorted reading materials. It is a cozy bookstore with a lot of hidden jems tucked on the shelves... More

I love Indy bookstores, and Gazebo Books did not disappoint! The amount of books in that small space was amazing! My husband and I really enjoyed looking around, as well as visiting with the owner. There is a musty smell in the building, which is quite old, but we didn't feel like our books had absorbed it when we left,... More

I shopped there and was treated very rudely by the woman who owns this store. I can't understand why when i simply asked a legitimate question Will never go back.

Wonderful book store with a wide, wide range of subjects and titles in a relatively small space. Owner was cordial and interesting, as well. I love book stores in general, and this is definitely one of the best small ones. Stop in - you'll be amazed at the choices.
